    That sounds like a great event. I wasn’t 100% sure what Strombo’s politics were, but that’s cool he’ll be there.

  2. verbena19 says:

    Yes, it’s cool alright. I like Strombo even better now… btw, I will be there too. Apparently, PC John Tory hasn’t felt up to facing the ire of those people who were dispossessed by his predecessors policies (Mike Harris, Ernie Eves)…. wonder if McGuinty will accept… The NDP’s Howard Hampton had no problem with accepting the invitation to attend. It says something about the 3 parties.

  3. Stephen says:

    If I were in Toronto, I’d be there too. lol

  4. Stephen says:

    Certainly having someone like Stephen Lewis will give it more exposure and put pressure on the politicians to attend.

  5. verbena19 says:

    Yes, indeed it will. I’ve always had a lot of respect and admiration for Stephen Lewis. I really look forward to hearing him. I just purchased my ticket for the event today. I’ll let you know how it went (if I don’t forget…. )
